The Sky Tower is a prominent attraction in the Central Business District and generally a good experience. We thought the price of $29 was high, though, for the view offered. We suggest taking the ferry over to Devenport and strolling up to the top of lovely Victoria Hill, instead, for a great view of Auckland and the harbour. This alternative... More

Fantastic 360 degree of Auckland. Try and go on a nice clear day. Glass floors to walk across if you have the nerve or you can pay to walk around the outside, or jump off. Quite expensive for what it is

We went to the sky tower as part of an included activity on our Contiki tour. I probably wouldn't have thought to go up there otherwise! The views are amazing, I wish we went up for sunset though! We planned to, but got bored after a while so didn't end up staying for that long.

The sky tour is fun for a great view of the city. I wouldn't consider it a "must see", but it was a good way to spend some time one afternoon.

The Sky Tower is nice place to visit. Everything is well organized there. When you are on the level with the glass floor it's a little bit scary, but it's not like all floor, just short segments. To me the scariest thing was glass floor in elevator! It's very good view from the each level. They have good cafe there... More

We were going to ride up and just view but if you are planning dinner downtown you might as well have dinner too. That way we got to see the sunset and view the city in daylight and dark. Booking dinner let's you jump the ticket cue line and the food and service were fabulous! I had the fish (snapper)... More

Certainly, the SkyTower is imposing to look at and the views are spectacular but that is one what one would expect from an attraction like this. Not much to do after you reach the top levels. Would recommend a maximum of 30 minutes being allocated for this attraction Lots of food and shopping options close to the Tower

We went up for lunch. Enjoyed the observation deck first & then had a lovely lunch! Excellent food & service. And the 360-degree view is SO good!
